Brokenhearted

The heart breaks and breaks
and lives by breaking.
It is necessary to go
through dark and deeper dark
and not to turn.
~~from "The Testing-Tree" by Stanley Kunitz

I have learned from love. And I have learned from heartbreak. Both are good teachers. I'm beginning to see that one opens the way for the other. Each time my heart is broken, it opens. More space is created for love to enter and flow through me. Doesn't mean it doesn't hurt like a son of a bitch though.

I'm to ADD to have it linger long :)

TAG! You're IT!

Just for fun.

I'd offer you a cliché, like how

"it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all," or

"there's plenty more fish in the sea."

It's still going to hurt for a while though. Perspective doesn't really help with that.

i hate the hurt. for me i have stopped seeking relationships with anyone simply because my heart has been broken too many times to put it through another shattering.
